A Quantification Study on Advanced Manufacturing Technology’s Social Influence Assessment


Article Preview

AMT investment projects not only improve the business productivity but effects the social aspects such as employment, macro economic and the stable development, and so on. Governments should make reasonable decision considering more from sociological perspective, because of that society benefits is more important than the profits to the business. This paper will construct the social assessment frame to the AMT project and use fuzzy evaluation to quantification the assessment result. Taking an enterprise from China as the empirical example tests this method, and verifies the project’s feasibility.
